Country singer Kacey Musgraves may have traded music for movies to walk the red carpet at the 2019 Oscars, but she still brought her signature style with her.
The 30-year-old Grammy winner walked the Academy Awards red carpet in a pink voluminous Giambattista Valli tulle gown, with tiered skirt, flared sleeves and bow brooch at the waist. She accessorized with high-shine metallic clutch and wore her hair slicked back in a low pony.
On E! Live from the Red Carpet, she talked about her couture creation from the fashion house. “I have been a fan of their works of art forever, so it’s an honor to get to wear this dress. It’s like, ‘Make way for the dress. I need about 10 feet.’”
Her evolving style comes courtesy of a recent collaboration with stylist Erica Cloud, who said that – like Musgraves’ music – the star’s style is true to her roots while being unapologetically herself. “Kacey is smart, fun, and creative, and I like to represent that with her wardrobe,” Cloud told PEOPLE. “We wanted her clothing to be a nod to the past but grounded in the future, like her music … She’s so talented that she doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles.”

Musgraves is on-hand to present during the ceremony, Variety reports. While it wasn’t revealed which category she’ll be announcing, it’s safe to bet it may be for one of the two music categories, Best Original Song or Best Original Score.
She’ll also be joined by a slew of other A-list presenters, including Elsie Fisher, Danai Gurira, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael B. Jordan, Michael Keaton, Helen Mirren, John Mulaney, Tyler Perry, Pharrell Williams, Krysten Ritter, Paul Rudd, Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson and Constance Wu.
The star is no stranger to awards herself; she walked away with multiple Grammys for Golden Hour, including best country album and the night’s big prize, album of the year.
For the red carpet, she chose a nude tulle Valentino Haute Couture gown that nodded to her award-winning album: The bodice of her gown resembled the fan on the Golden Hour cover.
“I love this dress — it immediately struck me because it reminded me of the fan that was on my album cover,” she told PEOPLE on the carpet.
Next up for Musgraves is the ACM Awards, where she’s nominated for five categories, including Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.
The 91st Academy Awards are broadcasting live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on ABC.
